As the Heritage Finance Street Stocks would take to the track the skies would open up and see a round of heavy rain. Efforts to dry the track would be in vain as the asphalt surface couldn’t be prepared after the rain to be safely raced on. The remaining features were called and rescheduled as twins on their corresponding nights.

Next week will see the annual Easter Bunny 150 with the PASS Series coming to town along with the ACT Series. This will be a multi-day event with racing on Friday and Saturday.
In two weeks the NAAPWS will to return to action with a full slate of racing action.
